Notes

I saw that John Zorn was going to have a 70th birthday celebration at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and being the Zornophile that I am, I made arrangements to go and stop to visit Pierce while I was out. I landed at Minneapolis St Paul airport at about 2pm and - baggage in tow - made my way to Calvary Cemetery.

I had had the foresight to map the location of the gravestone ahead of time. But foresight is no substitute for accuracy - and when I got there, I realized I had marked the wrong spot. Had to do some searching around before I found the right stone. Which was HUGE and ridiculously hard to miss.

From there, I took the bus to my AirBNB, checked in, and crashed HARD for the night.

Hit Zorn@70 at the Walter which was amazing. Life-changing. And caught up with an old friend Jim and his family in the meantime.
